PRIMARY SOURCE VERIFICATION
NATIONAL BOARD EXAMINATION CREDENTIALING ONLY
This credentialing form application is for an employer seeking credentialing verification information on an O.D. for employment. Please be aware that the NBEO develops, administers, and scores the entry-level examinations that are used by jurisdictional boards of optometry in making licensure decisions.
All states require passage of at least Part I (ABS) and Part II (PAM) for licensure. In addition, 53 jurisdictions require passing Part III (CSE) and 47 jurisdictions require the passing of the TMOD examination. The NBEO does NOT maintain information regarding the licensure status of optometrists.
NBEO will verify the following:
Primary Source Verification Fee: $60.00
- The examinations taken (Part I, Part II, Part III, ISE, TMOD)
- The month & year the examinations were taken
- The pass or fail status ("P" or "F")
Please note that the NBEO does not grant board certification. If interested in board certification, please visit NBEO-Board Certification, Inc. (NBEO-BC) at www.nbeo-bc.org for further information.
The verification will be electronic to the email address used at the time of purchase and may take up to 2 business days.
If you are an O.D. seeking licensure or change licensure status and need your official score report released to a State Board, please order an official score report at https://www.optometry.org/report/.
